Too Brief Honeymoon stay

4.0 on July 10, 2014

My wife and I spent two days in this B and B with Anne and Slim in mid-June. The room is exceptional and the view from your bed across Lake Geneva to the French Alps is world class,truly exceptional. Balcon sur le Leman is a bit out of the way but just above a train stop for the cog wheel train that leads up the mountain to and past Glion. However, Slim met us at the train and drove us the few minutes to their home. The suite is entirely seperate and below the main house. There is a lovely breakfast room seperate wher Anne served a delicious breakfast and we also availed of her offer to cook dinners both nights. Inquire re: cost in advance so you can decide whether to eat in town. Dining options are expensive in Montreux. We had a terrific hike after a short train ride up the mountain which Slim suggested for us.All in all, a great place with great people and we didn't plan enough time there, I can't recommend the Balcon sur le Leman more highly.


Visiter la région de Montreux dépasse nos attentes

4.8 on April 16, 2014

Après un vol de Toronto-Montréal- Genève, nous arrivons frais et dispos (!) à la gare de Montreux. Nous sommes sur le débarcadère à la recherche d'un type avec barbe et calotte et voilà Slim qui se présente et le début d'une amitié avec lui et sa femme Anne commence. Après un petit tour de ville, nous nous dirigeons vers le B&B. À l'arrivée, il est impossible de ne pas apprécier la vue époustouflante sur lac et l'accueil des plus chaleureux. On rencontre Anne qui est la gestionnaire, cuisinière et comité d'accueil car au fil des jours on découvrira que Slim est le gars de relations publiques, sous-chef et expert-conseil en voyages. Nos déjeuners sont préparés de façon magistrale par Anne et on découvre des confitures maison et croissants de la place. Il est très rare qu'un séjour à un gîte offre l’option soupers sur demande et nous avons accepté l'offre d'Anne et Slim avec joie. Les deux repas furent merveilleux, avec 2 spécialités régionales, mais la magie s'installe lorsqu'on leur demande de se joindre à nous pour le dessert et nous discutons des voyages qu'ils ont effectué à travers le monde. Cette synergie que ce couple offre est à découvrir par tous car ils prennent un plaisir certain a rencontrer des gens d'un peu partout dans le monde. Bref, le seul avertissement que je transmets a ceux qui veulent découvrir ce gite, la marche du gite à la ville est pour ceux qui sont en forme (descente :20 minutes, montée :30 minutes), un bon exercice mais sinon transport en commun est disponible par bus ou bientôt par train qui se fait en 5 minutes. Paul et Line
